"The reasonable man  adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one 
persists in trying to  adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress 
depends on 
the  unreasonable man."
-George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman  (1903)
"Maxims for Revolutionists"

Here is what the  critics are  saying...  
"Grade A! Thrilling, haunting, perceptive and beautifully  made." 
âOwen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly 
"Excellent! An Unreasonable Man is, like The Fog of War,  one of those 
opportunities to step back, take a breath, and remember the  seething power of 
recent history." 
-David Poland, Movie City  News 

An  Unreasonable Man taps rare archival  footage and more than forty diverse 
interviews to paint a complex portrait about  the storied career of Ralph 
Nader. This two-hour film (which has garnered wide  critical acclaim in recent 
weeks) uses Nader's harshest critics and most  eloquent supporters to create a 
compelling and inspirational interpretation of  Nader's life and of our times.
